Happy New Year!! As I reflect back on 2014, I’m happy I was blessed to have another year of amazing travel adventures. In April, I journeyed to the island of Culebra in Puerto Rico. In June, I made my first road trip to Savannah, Georgia and visited the historic First African Baptist Church (one of the first black congregations in North America). In late summer, I trekked to my first Eastern European country – Croatia – and spent my first time on a yacht during The Yacht Week. Also, I finally toured Italy (one of my long desires), seeing all the historical sites of Rome and beautiful panoramic views of the Amalfi Coast. I ended the year enjoying desert mountain vistas and spectacular sunsets in Phoenix, Arizona and Palm Springs, California. It was a wonderful year of fun, good times, and exploration.
Already, 2015 is looking to be another great year. On Christmas I snagged two amazingly cheap airfares on Etihad Airlines, which will allow me to strike off some biggies on my bucket list. In February, I’ll be visiting Dubai with friends (my first foray into Asia and my 5th continent). In March, I’m headed back to South Africa, where I will volunteer for one month (while also taking in the country’s beautiful sights and the Cape Town Jazz Festival). Hopefully, while I’m there I’ll also go white water rafting for the first time. I don’t know yet what the rest of 2015 holds, but I plan to make the best of it. I hope you too have another year of beautiful moments, treasured memories, and all the blessings your heart desires. Cheers!
